The process of ascension occurs on all levels of yourself simultaneously.
This means that not only is your physical body going through an upgrade, but you are also growing on the mental, emotional and spiritual levels as well. Your Higher Self, as we call the part of you that functions mostly outside of your conscious awareness, is growing right along with you. And your Higher Self’s Higher Self is growing too….and onward up the creational hierarchy the growth goes…through your choices, actions and experiences while incarnated here on planet Earth.
There are times, however, in which you may feel that you’re not advancing at all.
It could feel like a standstill, in fact. Your egotistical You has its own timeframe for advancement and you’re just not meeting those goals. Know that it’s hardly that.
Let’s compare You a Year Ago, with You NOW, on two different levels:
On a corporeal level, the ego compares the previous You, and the New You, according to illusion-based criteria:
“I have a better job. I live in a nicer place. I now have a car that runs.”
When you review yourself from a higher perspective, those physical milestones lose their importance. Other measuring sticks take over:
“I’m happier. I’m healthier. I am more creative.”
Every once in a while, review your personal report card.
Compare the Now You with a Former You.
Pick a You from a year ago, and a month ago, and yesterday. Reviewing all of these different You’s will give you a perspective on how malleable time is, for you’ll see rapid acceleration in all areas of your life the closer you get to “now.” This is because the illusion of time is collapsing into only “now.” It won’t be long before you, and others around you, will be living in the moment rather than in the linear “past” and “future.”
Your report card need not include grades. In a holographic Universe, self evaluation using linear grades make no sense. You are growing on all levels, some of which you’re aware of and others in which you are not.
Here’s my favorite decree when comparing my earlier Me’s to the now Me:
“I see progress.”
Soon enough, if not already, you will be recognizing your progress in every area, from every You of which you are aware. Being in this state of appreciation brings more vistas of awareness to your view, and more You’s will feel comfortable making their existence known. This is how we integrate, by accepting ourselves in all their forms, and recognizing how much we’ve all grown.
Love to you.
